Mass-Murder To Be Let Loose

Raymond Ratima is due for a parole hearing in June, but family of those that he killed, said he should never be released to walk free on the outside. They say that he should stay behind bars for the rest of his natural life. On June 25th, 1992, when he was age 25, he bludgeoned and stabbed 7 members of his family to death, including his pregnant 20 year old sister in law and his own 3 sons, who were age 7, 5 and 2. He pleaded guilty and was sentanced to life in prison. Life should be life, should it not ? Yet here he is applying for parole - again. He applied for parole in 2003 but this was vehemently opposed by family and others. He was again denied parole, last year. Now once again, he has applied for parole. What surprises me is the fact that the parole board said that he had been drug-free since September 2005 ??? Here he was in jail, since 1992 when he committed the murders, but they say he has only drug-free since 2005 ? Where & how was he getting drugs in prison ? He should of been drug free within weeks of been jailed, not since 2005. It doesn't say very much for our prison system, does it ?

You Look Fat ?

A woman was stopped at the Gaza-Egypt border crossing after guards noticed that she look strangely fat. A search by a female border guard found that it wasn't food that made the woman seem strangely fat, but more mother nature. She had three 50cm long crocodiles tied to her body underneath her loose robe. The crocodiles were returned to the Egyptian side of the border (I don't think you would find a man who would be willing to try that. The poor croc's might get hungry for some fresh meat !!!)

Homework Is Murder

When I was going to school, many moons ago, we never got homework like they do today. Students at one Auckland high school were given an assignment in which they had to describe themselves as a murderer and detail how they would kill their victim and dispose of the body. The aim was to get them to read the Roald Dahl novel, Lamb To The Slaughter, in which a woman kills her husband with a frozen leg of lamb, then cooks it up and serves it for dinner to the investigating officers. A nice way to kill someoe as well as dispose of the weapon, isn't it ?


A UK man who had started his own chatroom, logged on and announced to those that were logged in, that he was going to kill himself. Serveral visitors to the site thought that it was a hoax, while others told him to hurry up and get on with it. He switched on his webcam, stood on a chair and hung himself. Someone alerted the police but by the time they found out where he lived and broke into his flat, it was........too late !!!
Brandon Vedas, 21 from Phoenix, Arizona also committed suicide online in 2003.

Son Sees His Dead Father As Art.

For an art exbihibtion last year a Napier artist, Nigel Madden submitted 3 photographs of his dead father lying bruised on a motuary slab. The brusies were inflicted when his father who had a heart attack, fell off his stool in a Napier bar. The photos were accepted by the organizers of the art exhibition, but carried a warning sign. This year Nigel is going one step futher by submitting his fathers ashes emtombed in a reflective funeral urn and placed on a pedestal. If accepted for display, in the art exhibition the organizers will consider if the urn, warrants a warning sign. Even though the urn will carry a price tag of $2000, Nigel is certain that it will not sell. The entry will be entitled "The End Of Art". There are a lot of mad people out there who would be silly enogh to buy the urn, so it could be the end of his father.

The Apple Of His Eye

Talking about dead fathers - Rolling Stones guitarist, Keith Richards has claimed that he snorted his father's ashes with cocaine during a drug binge. "He was cremated and I couldn't resist grinding him up with a little bit of cocaine. It went down pretty well and I'm still alive". The story has been greeted with amazement and some scepticism. You could say that he has got more than a little bit of his father in him or his father is the apple of his eye.

A Bullet Costs A Dollar

I have said it before and I will save it again - a bullet costs a dollar !!! We have a case in NZ, where Graham Burton who had been released after serving 14 years for murder, only to murder again. He not only shot but also stabbed to death a father of two, who wouldn't give up his bike, when Burton came across him in the bush. Burton also shot and injured other people that were out bush walking during his attempted escape from police. He has been sentanced to 26 years in prison at a cost to the taxpapyer of approx. $50,000 per year, or is it more ? Does anyone know ? I heard someone say, that it costs double that. During the police hunt, Burton was shot in the leg by police, which resulted in him losing his lower leg. Yet when he appeared in court in his wheelchair he was surrounded by prison guards - five in the photo, but how many more were there - What's he going to do - kick them with his good leg. Hopefully, he won't end up murdering a fellow prison inmate during his 26 years in prison. There are others that have been jailed for 28 years & 33 years for murder, who are going to be made to serve their full sentance without been able to apply for parole. But then what - released to kill again ? If it is a clear case of murder - the one sentanced to 33 years murdered 3 people in cold blood and brutally injured a 4th person, who despite her injuries managed to pull thru and give evidence in court. Why let them live. As soon as a sentance is handed down, take them out the back and put a bullet in the head. Better still put all those inmates guilty of murder in the prison yard. Give guns to the families of those they killed, put them in the watch-towers and let them fire away and do the good deed........!!! A life for a life or in some cases, a life for several lives. USA has inmates waiting on death row that have been waiting for years & years to be put to death - put them in the prison yard and get it over with. NZ would save millions of taxpayers money over the years, while USA would save hundred's of millions.
